Pictures from Asia: Part 1, Food

I have decided to post some pictures from our trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong in 3 parts: Food, family, and street.  I had to split up the posts to 3 parts because there are just too many photos to put in 1 post.

Food is all the things we ate that I managed to take a picture of.  This shows about 1/3 of the food we had, because the rest of the time I was either holding Savanna or didn’t have my camera with me and didn’t manage a picture.

Family is mostly the kids and my family in Taiwan.  This may not be interesting to everyone following the blog, but it’s more for my family to see the pictures.

Street is street photography of random things I saw in Taiwan and HK.

Today’s theme is food.  You can see how I quickly put on 3 pounds on this short trip.
